On point no. I just noticed something on Settings:app feature. I would like Coast to always clear browsing data when you exit, and then relaunch. But in Settings, you can mark clear, but it only seems to work once. The switch then seems to return to a default (no clear) position. At least when I returned it was back to "no clear." So it would appear you have to go back "every" time you want to clear. And going to settings to do this is harder (may require scrolling through a number of screens and more on the Ipad) than if there were just a button on Coast that let you clear before you exit. So I still think, although the Settings:app feature is definitely a plus and helps, a "clear" button on the Ipad would be useful. It could be in a button, that gives you a context menu with a number of other items, one of which is to instantly clear Coast of tabs, open and closed. (Instead of having to scroll through a number of screens to get to the Settings, and more, you can do it more quickly and easily in Coast itself). (If you could have set the Settings:App feature to always empty cache when you exit, then the feature I'm suggesting would be unnecessary).
+1 to this!!!!!
Also when I search on a desktop browser I like to open multiple results in separate tabs. It's a quick and easy way to scan through several pages. All I seem to be able to do in Coast is open 1 page at a time. Some way of opening links within web pages to a separate page would be great.
Hmmmm. What I'm trying to do is get a sense of what I may be doing to cause being sent back to that login page. If it makes no sense, it's a bug. But if I can't explain it to Opera in the bug report -- exactly when I'm sent back to the page, or if it happens crazily or randomly -- I help no-one.
Maybe somehow with Coast, I'm clearing cache when I go back to settings and say empty the Coast browser on exiting. When I clear cache, it still has my address and password, but I have to log in again. Or when I swipe the tabs closed, it loses the login. The problem with Coast is it's hard for me to understand on this issue how it's supposed to operate.
Also, I'm trying to identify if I'm sent back to the login page at other times. I think so, but sometimes I'm operating it in a haze because I'm forcusing on other things. At least it helps that Coast supplies my username and password at the login page. Opera is very busy trying to satisfy all of the complainers in the forum (smile) and I don't want to waste their time, unless I think I can help them.
Mercury and Dolphin-- both quite good -- have the adblockers. And they are both excellent browsers. Now I prefer Coast because of the wonderful aesthetics that make me feel so totally self-sufficient in Coast. If Coast could add an ad-blocker it would make it even better, as long as it doesn't apprecianly slow the browser. It wouldn't be worth it for me if it slows browsing.
No, I think I give on this, after trying today. Copying the urls is a struggle. If I'm in Coast and need to resaerch something, and then copy a url, I open another browser -- maybe Puffin-- where I can relatively easily copy the link back to Coast. It ought to be easier and more reliable than it is in Coast to copy a link with Coast.
Hmmmm. One nit, I just noticed. I would like Coast to always clear browsing data when you exit, and the relaunch. But in Settings, you can mark clear, but it only seems to work once. The switch then seems to return to a default (no clear) position. At least when I returned it was back to "no clear." So it would appear you have to go back every time you want to clear. And going to settings to do this is harder (you may have to move through a number of Ipad screens just to get to settings) than if there were just a button on Coast that let you clear before you exit. So I still think a "clear" button on the Ipad would be useful. It could be in a button, that gives you a context menu with a number of items, one of which is to clear Coast of tabs, open and closed.(If you could have set the Settings:App feature to always empty cache when you exit, then the feature I'm suggesting would be unnecessary).
Thank you so much! That did the trick. They are synced now. I could not find anywhere on how to do this. I appreciate the help! That step sheould be on Opera's help page. I can't believe I am the only one that has had this problem.
The tiles in Coast are not bookmarks to specific sites, but instead to Web Apps.
In this case Opera Coast should have detected that kyu3.blog.jp was a different web app than blog.jp, and then it would have worked as you expected. Same with google.co.jp / news.google.co.jp.
To add specific sites to your home screen, you can do like we recommended here:
Hope this helps!
For people who don't use the services, the buttons, if there are too many, may make less pleasing the minimalist interface. Maybe ONE. button somewhere, something akin to a context menu, that if pressed could give some of your proposed options, and also the ones I have asked for in a separate thread in the Coast forum -- an option with one click to close all open tabs, and another, with one click to restore all tiles to a home position (so if you have been browsing, you don't have to be swiping back to restore the tile to its initial position).
I have 41 sites as favorites, and am using 314 mb. It's in 7th place for the app using the most space on my ipad, Now since I do have an IPAD shortage of space (I've just cut some other stuff) it would be good if it takes up less space in the future.
buzzclick, when you say you have no recent sites in memory, when you go to websites, at the end of a browser session do you close it out by clicking in the lower right on the three small rectangles, and then with each site open, dragging them up to deletion?
I can probably wait till the next fix, as that download to deal with the cache sounds like ;))) too much work. On the other hand if Coast were taking up 1 and 1/2 gigs of space, hmmmm, I'd probably download that funbox stuff . . . Or I might have to delete Coast. That is too much memory for a browser to take up, though it sounds like a fix is coming.
What I don't understand is that if you are deleting everything that is open by clicking on the three small rectangles in the lower right, why there is a cache building up. (In another post/ thread in the Coast part of the forum, I expressed a concern about the websites that build up, unless you manually close each one out, as it seems like too much work) (maybe there should be a button, where you can close all sites open with one touch).
If there is a cache building up, there definitely ought to be a place on the browser where you can click to delete it.
